Student Design Projects Description

The Biomedical, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical and Systems Science and Industrial Engineering departments have strong engineering design components integrated into the curricula. Each has specific design courses as well, and seniors engage in a senior project in which products are developed to completion, undertaken either with an industrial sponsor, a non-profit sponsor, or as an entrepreneurial new venture. The design project emphasis has been built into the Watson School engineering program to provide this type of preparation. In addition to practice in design, it trains students in effective communication and cooperative learning methods. It challenges their unexamined assumptions about the world around them in order to make them in order to make them more flexible and open to a diverse and complex society.
